Welcome to Elaho’s Babies and Toddlers Expanded!

**Nov 17, 2022: Version 2.0 is now available!**
Please read the description below, as Config options have now changed


This mod lets you imagine and explore more Stardew narratives with your ‘farm family’, such as:
-       Cheating on your spouse
-       Have your spouse cheat on you
-       Divorce your old spouse, keep your child, remarry, and have a new baby
-       Adoption
-       Surrogacy
-       Abandon your kids (with the prismatic shard) and have new ones
-       Have one baby abducted by aliens and replaced with a different looking one in the night (when your child ages up to toddler)

The possibilities are endless!

Configuration: Babies
Baby sprites can be either male or female and come with Rugrats-style clothing (shirt/dress with diaper). Each baby comes with a unique hairstyle and clothing colour, with a hair and clothing change between the crib and the crawling baby. 

“Baby Gender”
– all baby sprites come in either “Male” or “Female”. Which gender you choose will open different ‘generational’ colour scheme options. (**Note: The configuration of baby sprites will need to be changed manually after the birth of each child. For example, if your baby is a girl, you will need to first save the game, close SDV, and then change the “Baby Gender” setting to “Female” in the config file before restarting the game.**)

“Baby Colour Scheme”

*Requires SMAPI and Content Patcher*

TROUBLESHOOTING (PLEASE READ!):


ISSUE #1: My baby/child looks like the Original version from Stardew Valley

SOLUTION: The new Config file requires all options to be compatible with each other for the mod to work.
For example, if your config file reads as follows:

"Kippah": "True",
"Kippah Color Scheme": "Alex",
"Joja Male Toddler": "True",

In this case, SMAPI will not apply the changes and your child will look like the default toddler from Vanilla SVD. ("Kippah": "True" and "Joja Male Toddler": "True" are not compatible with each other, since both "Kippah" and "Joja" options cannot exist at the same time). Please be sure only one "True" option is chosen for baby/toddler sprites. 

ISSUE #2: My baby/child looks different from the options I've chosen in the Config file

SOLUTION: Babies and toddlers may also appear different from what you've chosen if your specifications don't match the requirements in the Content File. For example: If you'd like your male child to resemble Lance, but your child appears as Alex wearing a Kippah instead, your Config file may look like this:

"Kippah": "True",
"Kippah Color Scheme": "Alex",
"Male Toddler Color Scheme": "Lance",

In this case, because "Kippah" is labelled "True" in the Config file, SMAPI is reading also reading "Kippah Color Scheme": "Alex" as "True". (Even though it's listed in the Config file, SMAPI reads anything in "Kippah Color Scheme" as "false" or "off", unless "Kippah" is "True"). To have the Lance sprite apply instead of Alex's, please be sure any "True"/"False" options are labelled "False". This also applies to any other Spouse-based sprites. 

***If you are experiencing any issues will babies/toddlers in your save file, please double-check your Config file for any inconsistencies. Any initial questions or troubleshooting concerns regarding sprite appearances will always be redirected back to this page. Thank you***

Future Mod Updates: Version 2.0+

- Collaboration plans between myself and Airyn from Diverse Stardew Valley are being made to include more babies/toddlers for the Diverse Stardew Valley mod. These will be added in a future update.

- Plans to include compatible babies/toddlers for other mod packages (Ridgeside Village, East Scarp, etc.) are being considered, but I will need to reach out to the creators of these mods to see how they'd feel about it. If they approve, children for these mods will be added in a future update.

- Many people have asked about having this mod be compatible with Alternative Textures, but I was hesitant to create a compatibility pack with all the updates and sprite overhauls for 2.0. Plans are in the works, however, to create an AT file for anyone who would like one. (To be added in a future update as well). 

- The idea of nighttime/bedtime sprites is being considered. This (additional?) package would include child pyjamas and closed/sleepy eyelids from 6 pm-2 am, as I always found it creepy that your kids go to bed and just stare at you. Eyes open. The whole time. While you sleep...
